- To understand what a musical motif is
Pupils should be taught to:
- Listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory
- Play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices (and playing instruments) with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression
- Appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians
Pupils needing extra support: Might benefit from having access to a tablet or computer which allows them to replay each song multiple times to give them extra time to hear motifs.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should use the Activity: Roman motifs extension sheet if the Activity: Roman motifs is too easy. Should be encouraged to use their own instruments for the activity if they are having instrumental lessons.
